2014 Volkswagen CC vs. 2014 Acura TL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volkswagen CC offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura TL. The Acura TL will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volkswagen CC as you will with the Acura TL, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Volkswagen CC will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura TL. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volkswagen CC and the Acura TL have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen CC is a little narrower than the Acura TL, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Volkswagen CC is slightly shorter than the Acura TL, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Volkswagen CC doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Acura TL.

Handling
The Volkswagen CC has a smaller turning radius than the Acura TL, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen CC is significantly less powerful than the Acura TL. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen CC and the Acura TL. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Volkswagen CC as you will in the Acura TL.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen CC is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura TL.
